I have a file that I have tried transferring across the wired LAN via both scp and rsync, and both have yielded the same result. When I run
du file on the file after the transfer, the file is 8 bytes larger on the recipient host.
I have also checked
head file | hexdump -C on both hosts, and they are identical. Same story for
Any ideas why this might be happening? If it matters, the file is a gzip.
